Traditional Chinese Medicine - What Is It?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. TCM focuses on restoring 'Yin Yang' balance in your body by regulating 'Qi' flow in your body's meridians or channels to promote natural healing. Patients with similar symptoms can have different root causes of an ailment or vice versa.
Although scientific investigations into the efficacy of TCM to treat specific diseases are ongoing, many controlled scientific studies have found remarkable benefits from acupuncture and herbal medicines in the treatment of various symptoms, diseases, and conditions. In fact, an offical report entitled Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials by the World Health Organization (WHO), a leading international authority on health-related matters, lists conditions acupuncture effectively treats, including lower back & neck pain, sciatica, headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke, hypertention, leucopenia and biliary colic, among many others.
